The Healing Place of Wake County, a non-profit recovery and rehabilitation facility for homeless people with alcohol and other drug addictions, was recently recognized by the Oxford House of North Carolina for their service to the community. The Healing Place received acknowledgement of one million beds of shelter provided to homeless men and women during their path to recovery.

Dennis Parnell, Executive Director of The Healing Place, was presented with a proclamation of the one million bed mark from the Oxford House at The Healing Place’s holiday open house in December. The Oxford House is a concept in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction that provides a democratically run, self-supporting and clean and sober housing option for individuals in recovery.

“Since The Healing Place opened its doors to the men’s facility in 2001 and the women’s facility in 2006, the board of directors and their dedicated staff have not only impacted the lives of so many participants, but their services have truly made our community a better place to live,” said Kurtis Taylor, an outreach and coordinator for Oxford House North Carolina. “We would like to recognize The Healing Place Wake County for their service to the community as it has providing an innovative residential recovery program, emergency shelter, and the non-medical detox,” he added.

The Healing Place of Wake County is a non-profit 501 (c) (3)  long term recovery and rehabilitation facility for homeless people addicted to alcohol and other drug dependency. The Men’s Facility opened its doors in 2001 and the Women’s Facility began operation in 2006. The Healing Place facilities have provided more than one million beds of shelter and days of recovery to homeless men and women at a cost of less than $35 per client per day. Remarkably, one year after program completion over 70% of the graduates from the program are still in long term recovery, employed, tax paying citizens. The Healing Place of Wake County is built on the principles of a highly successful recovery model which received the 1998 US Department of Health Resources and Service Administration “Models That Work Award” in recognition of the success of the program.
